15 Weeks- halfway there?

I am 15 weeks pregnant today! The average quad pregnancy is about 30 weeks, so that means I'm halfway there! (32 weeks is our goal, but the babies would be pretty safe at 30 weeks or even 28.) Too bad I just finished the easy half! I can't even imagine actually having four little babies at home right now. It seems way too far in the future, but I'm guessing it will fly by faster than I ever thought. I guess I should savor my sleep and my non-huge body while I can.

I still feel really good. My appetite is insatiable though! Last night, for example, I ate about the same as Dan, and while he was uncomfortably full for the rest of the night, I had to keep snacking half an hour later and until bed! Sometimes this appetite is annoying because I run out of food that I actually feel like eating. My only complaints are tiredness and occasional backaches or headaches. Oh, and I get really antsy between appointments. I really want to know how they are all doing. Hopefully next Wednesday our news will only be good news. We are really lucky so far and I hope this continues through the rest of the pregnancy. You can see in the pic my belly is noticeably bigger this week!

Who else in MN is aching for real fall weather? Not to be the typical Minnesotan who constantly talks about weather, but really, my favorite season is fall. I love the crisp air and the smells of fall. We plan on taking a nice drive during the color peak- hopefully stopping at an apple orchard or pumpkin patch. I think I love fall so much because it reminds me of cross country running. My favorite runs from high school and college were in the 50-60 F weather and stopping at apple trees after the workout. This weekend I'm heading to Duluth, which will have more fall-like weather. Dan's heading to my cabin with his brother and possibly a cousin to bring home the bird meat! (partridge hunting) Last time he went I think they got their limit in partridge...

Until next time! Have a great week and weekend!
